Times: 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Rid your Jack O' Lanterns properly. A roll off dumpster will be available for pumpkin drop off (pumpkins only, no candles or added decorations) during the hours of 11 am to 2:30 pm near the sled hill at Community Park (1401 N. Midlothian Road, Mundelein).The Pumpkin Drop event runs from 12:30 to 1:30 pm, and is free to attend.
Pumpkin Drop will include the traditional rolling races down the sled hill, and smashing pumpkins to smithereens, and of course composting of all those squashed squashes. Big Red, the trebuchet/catapult designed and built by Mundelein High School students is back to launch 20 lucky winning pumpkins selected from pre-registered participants soaring into the sky and smash upon their landing. The distance will be measured and the winner will receive a special prize!
New this year, try your luck at the Pumpkin Walk game for a chance to win a pumpkin pie, learn how a catapult works and construct a mini one to take home, and other fun activities. At the conclusion of the Pumpkin Drop and community-wide pumpkin composting event, all pulverized pumpkin remains will be taken to a composting facility.
Keith Mione Community Park, Sled Hill
Note: Please remove all materials from inside your pumpkin. Pre-registration is encouraged and only pumpkins from participants will be accepted.
